Changing the locker in the rear end???

Checked the p/n with ford and my truck has a limited slip rear axle but I think it's had much better days wondering how big of a pain it is to replace and how much is a new locker

The stock LS is some what of a joke. It is what it is. Tru track gets my vote as well. I dont have one in my truck, but have rode in trucks with them and they work well.

I've noticed that mine doesn't perform like it should either which I kinda thought was strange with it having only 57,000 miles on the truck.
My Lightning still has the factory limited slip unit and its still working fine at 117,000+ miles.

Thumbs up

Mine was replaced at 14,000 with a True Trac unit at a local 4x4 shop. It was about $850 installed a few years back (unit cost about $550 I think). I asked the shop to take apart the old unit and the clutches were smoked, I drive like a regular guy and was on stock tires/wheels.

The thing never worked well stock and the dealer attempted to tell me the RR is supposed to spin for a while before the LR grabs too. It only spun one tire on dry pavement, wet pavement, grass, mud, etc.

I have not had a problem since I replaced that factory POS.
